View Full Version : My very first juice fast
12-16-2008, 08:40 PM
I am starting my very first juice fast right now! I am going to blog about it, in case anyone wants to check it out :) I'm sure I will update it daily, if not a couple times a day.
I've never done anything like this before. My husband is on day 15 of his juice fast so I am glad that we have each other for support, and that also means there won't be any food temptation at home. Does anyone have any 'juice-recipes' for helping with acne? I have been breaking out on my chin and it seems kind of like cystic acne. I did a search on here and found that cucumber juice can help, but does anyone have any other recommendations? Thank you!

For some reason celery juice seems to help me when I break out - I get break outs when I am in detox mode. Lemon water also seems to do wonders too for me anyways- both seem to be very cleansing.
Good luck on your fast.

Hey I as well have started my first juice fast today! So far so good. I have done the MC but never finished it properly - it was back in my SAD days and after 5 days of the MC came the weekend where I would always get together with friends and drink a couple beers and got completely corked! Bad idea and very dangerous - I don't recommend ANYONE to do that :eek:
This morning I had lemon water with chlorella and spirulina. Been drinking lots of water. Tonight I made a huge thing of green juice: cucumber, celery, broccoli sprouts, whole broccoli with the stem, green cabbage, green kale, sunflower sprouts and I also had a shot of dandelion juice, nettle and black radish juice.
I've also been getting break outs lately - which never happens, maybe climate change, stress.. etc..
I think as long as I keep drinking as much green juice of whatever mixture of greens my skin should clear up in no time ! Hopefully yours will too :)
Good luck on your fast !

Good luck on your juice fast!
cukes are GREAT for skin. break-outs are a good thing -- stuff that needs to get out will take the quickest (weakest) exit from the body.
btw - mouth/chin break-outs can sometimes be related to food allergies or hormones. make sure you don't have a sensitivity or allergy to something you are using every day -- change it up!
and if you have taken the pill or had a lot of products with natural estrogens or xenoestrogens, detoxification is the time they will make their appearance through the quickest exit. raw will help you re-balance.
while juice fasting, get a skin brush and dry brush your skin! it'll help with letting out toxins through the skin & scraping off dead skin cells.
i like what rawnna is doing as well. going one type of juice a day helps your body more than mixing up different foods for the juicing. for variety, i understand you'd want to mix it up in recipes. so maybe add some mono-juices in there occasionally. :)
